Assistant professor Frank Löffler and postdoctoral fellow Kirsti Ritalahti of the Georgia Institute of Technology examine unusual, strictly anaerobic bacteria (bacteria capable of living in the absence of free oxygen) that were isolated from freshwater river sediments and marine fish intestines. Löffler and his research team believe these microorganisms may be used in the future to clean up certain polluted environments, thereby improving the present bioremediation process.

This research is supported by National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program grant 00-90496, awarded to Dr. F. E. Löffler. (Year of image: 2003)
